Gladys Berejiklian is 'bad choice' for NSW Premier: Jones

SYDNEY, Australia-Gladys Berejiklian is set to become Premier of Australia's most populous state, New South Wales, according to Huffington Post Australia.

Outspoken radio host Alan Jones says frontrunner Gladys Berejiklian is a "bad choice" for NSW Premier following Mike Baird's shock resignation.

The ABC has been told Ms Berejiklian, who hails from the left of the party, has the numbers.

She says she has asked Finance Minister Dominic Perrottet to be her Liberal party deputy.

"I have indicated and I want to confirm that I will be putting my hand up for the Liberal Party leadership on Monday, I've indicated that to my colleagues and tried to speak to as many as possible", she said.

Colder temperatures, chance of snow expected into the weekend
Renta said that between midnight and 6 a.m. tomorrow there is an 80 percent chance of either snow, sleet or freezing rain . The NWS advisory for a high risk of rip currents will remain in place until at least Saturday evening.

The state's deputy premier and Nationals leader John Barilaro, who also learnt about Mr Baird's retirement plans through the media, said Ms Berejiklian would make a fantastic premier.

"Gladys will make an excellent Premier and she has my full support", Mr Constance said in a statement. He said, "Across NSW people would say 'What about the families who have been ruined by the greyhound ban ..."

NSW Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian looks certain to be the state's next Premier after Transport Minister Andrew Constance ruled out running for the position.

Ms Berejiklian remained tight-lipped about what her policy agenda would be, including her position on hot-button issues like lockout laws and council amalgamations.

"And I've made that clear to anybody, that there's absolutely no hard feelings if people put up their hand and want to run for the leadership on Monday - competition is healthy and if people feel they want to make that contribution, they should feel free to do that".

A previous study based on the same samples also showed the moon formed early, within 68 million years of the solar system's birth. Perets, who added that, "a previously formed moon could therefore already exist when another moon-forming giant impact occurs".

"I'm someone who appreciates what it's like to face challenges in life and to have to keep applying yourself", she said.

"It's fair to say the coffee meeting I had with him yesterday morn wasn't what I expected it to be", she said.

But Ms Berejiklian has exposed herself to the accusations of a "stitch-up" by leaking the deal with Mr Perrotet within hours of Mr Baird's resignation press conference.

"The news came as a surprise for me that's for sure", Mr Bromhead.

Following the meeting, Mr Baird will retire from parliament effective immediately.

Alli has often been likened to Gerrard and Lampard after helping Tottenham push for the title in his first season in the league. Even as Spurs' star began to rise again in recent weeks, that result remains the most memorable of the season so far.

Mr Bromhead said Mr Baird's decision would not affect the council amalgamations and the formation of MidCoast Council. "We've not ever had a conversation about that".
